Learn a little bit more about Faith:
Faith Jay Daniels began her storied career at the age of 2, as a Royal Academy of Dance trained classical ballerina. This California native has a longtime love of dance and fitness and has been able to participate and excel at many competitive sports. It was this drive that helped her return to the ballet world after a life-threatening car accident. Despite doctors telling her that ballet was no longer an option, Faith worked hard in recovery for over a year. The fierce determination within got her back on her toes. Unfortunately, she was not able to perform at her previous professional level. Because of this, she found herself seeking a new form of personal expression. It was during this journey that she found the world of aerial athletics.
Finally, her love of dance and fitness was renewed. Upon completion of her first pole spin, she was hooked! The next logical step was to progress to pole championships. Two weeks before her first competition, she suffered a severe shoulder injury. Going against doctors orders, she decided to continue with her plans to compete. She began with placing in the top 5 in her first attempt, the 2009 USPDF West Coast Regional. This earned her a title of USPDF professional. Now with her competition behind her, she would be forced into full reconstructive shoulder surgery. Another year would go by before she was able to resume training of any kind.
Back with the same determination, she is currently ranked in the top 12 of the USPDF National Champions for 2011. Among her accomplishment, she is a PFA professional member, fitness professional and owner of On Pointe Fitness.
Her athleticism and artistry has been featured at events such as Vertical Pole Challenge, Emilee Wilson’s Exscape TV’s Polemasters, Good Hurt’s Medicinal Mondays, Blue Ultra Lounge and Rock the Pole Reloaded as well as Playboy Mansion parties and events. She has been spotlighted during telecasts on LA Live Talk Radio, Good Day LA Fox 11 news, Telemundo, CNN, CBS Sunday Mornings, VGTV.com and Timeout NY . Newly added to her resume are the interview with Pole Skivvies and the Enrique Iglesias with Usher/Lil Wayne video for Dirty Dancer.
On the rare moments when Faith is not training, teaching or performing some type of aerial, she still enjoys outdoor activities such as snow sports, water sports, mountain biking, off-road and outrigger canoe. When she slows down, she works on her jewelry line, learns new contortion movements and enjoys that California beach lifestyle.
